    Comedy routines

    I just came across "comedy routines" in a test paper here and I couldn't find the meanings on the Internet. What on earth does it mean? Is it equivalent to situation comedy? Thanks.

    Re: Comedy routines

    A comedy routine is a comedy sketch which is performed regularly/routinely by a comedian or group of comedians.

    It doesn't have to be a sketch for me- a stand-up comedian on tour doing the same or similar material every night would be a routine.
